Not making it to the Velodrome was a bad move and watching this pre-race film, shown at the start of every session, has only made me feel worse. Soundtrack by the Chemical Brothers, commissioned especially for the venue, this is the work of London creative agency Crystal CG who also provided the audience pixels and roof LED animations during the Opening Ceremony. Ultimate future-travel flick Tron was their primary inspiration so expect lots of lasers and general zooming about. Another great touch that, mascot aside, has kept the London games stylish.
